Château Grande Cassagne Red Rhone Blend Costières-de-Nîmes G.s 2010

External Review:

This soft, inviting rosé hails from the western edge of the Rhône valley and has a blend similar to many red Côtes du Rhônes: Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. The wine has a beautiful perfume of strawberry-like fruit and an electric pink/purple reflective element to the color.

This is my favorite dry rose. I drink it with or without food. This wine will pair with a large variety of foods and is an excellent choice for the summer especially if you are a red wine lover as I am. I purchase this wine by the case when I buy.

One of the best rosés I have tasted this spring, Grand Cassagne's 2002 Costieres de Nimes rosé includes 25% Mourvèdre in the blend (the remainder is Grenache and Syrah). Its delicate, light ruby/salmon color is followed by gorgeous aromas of candied strawberries intermixed with raspberries and cherries. This light to medium-bodied, dry rosé possesses admirable weight as well as structure. It is a fascinating effort to enjoy over the next 6-12 months.

Fresh and zesty, with slightly confected, bubble-gum-like aromas balanced by bright lime notes and even a bit of chalk-dust minerality to add grip and interest on the finish. Drink now.

Chteau Grande Cassagne, owned and operated by Benot and Laurent Dard, is situated on the western edge of the Rhne Valley near the village of St. Gilles. Their vineyards are planted on an ancient riverbed covered with cailloux, or round weathered stones. The Dard brothers are well known for their exemplary red wines of deep concentration. However, their best-kept secret may be their Ros. Made from three grapes, the wine exudes red fruits and a strawberry perfume. This Ros is a blend of 60% Grenache, 35% Syrah, 5% Mourvdre and comes from tiny berries of forty-plus year old vines. Fermented a short time on its skins, it retains an electric pink color, soaring aromatics, and fully dry palate. Serve well chilled!

Very fresh, with a stony edge lending good definition to the strawberry and cherry fruit, with a racy finish. Drink now.

Very fresh and juicy, with racy red and black currant fruit laced with a bracing cherry pit hint. Solid length. Drink now.
